Tenth of Muharram on Thursday 14th November

Print

The first of Muharram was Tuesday 5th November 2013, so the 10th of Muharram will be Thursday 14th November 2013.

We are encouraged to fast the 10th of Muharram (Aashooraa') along with either the 9th or 11th in order to commemorate the day that Musa (alayhi as-salaam) was saved from Pharoah and his army.

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madinah and saw the Jews fasting on the day of 'Ashura'. He said, 'What is this?' They said, 'This is a righteous day, it is the day when Allah saved the Children of Israel from their enemies, so Musa fasted on this day.' He said, 'We have more right to Musa than you,' so he fasted on that day and commanded [the Muslims] to fast on that day." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1865] 

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with them both) said: "I never saw the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) so keen to fast any day and give it priority over any other than this day, the day of 'Ashura', and this month, meaning Ramadhan." [Reported by al-Bukhari, 1867]

 

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "For fasting the day of 'Ashura', I hope that Allah will accept it as expiation for the year that went before." [Reported by Muslim, 1976]

May Allaah enable us to earn the reward of this important fast.

Qurbani/Udhhiya for Eid al-Adhaa 1434

Print

As last year, Masjid al-Tawhid is supporting Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation in Islamabad, Pakistan to provide a Qurbani/Udhhiya service for Eid al-Adhaa. Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation also operates an Orphan Sponsorship programme.

Ar-Rahmah Welfare Organisation hope to provide a personal and hands-on service that most other charities lack. Most charities are content to slaughter all their livestock in the more accessible large camps, rather than trouble themselves to go deep into the hills. We, through our network of schools, try to get the meat to the most inaccessible areas. There we help the poorest people who otherwise would not have meat on Eid.

Additionally, this year Al-Rahmah will be able to arrange the sacrifice not only in Pakistan but also in Syria, Burma and Afghanistan.

Tahajjud Prayers during the Last Ten Nights

Print

Alhamdulillaah, some volunteers have arranged for tahajjud prayers to be held at the masjid during the last ten nights of Ramadan. The tahajjud prayer will start at 1am and continue till 2:15am in shaa' Allaah, and will be led by our Imam Abd-ul-Ghaffar. Prayers will commence from the night of Sunday-Monday, corresponding to the early hours of 29th July in shaa' Allaah.

The masjid will be open for both brothers and sisters. 

As it is in the middle of the night, please ensure you park sensibly with minimum noise. Please enter and leave the masjid calmly, and please do not loiter around the masjid. Parents with children are requested to keep their children with them at all times, and supervise them.

Finally, if anyone wishes to volunteer to help during these nights then please contact the masjid office.

May Allaah help us to make the best use of these nights, and enable us to seek out the Night of Qadr :

Indeed, We sent the Qur'an down during the Night of Decree.
And what can make you know what is the Night of Decree?
The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months.
The angels and the Spirit descend therein by permission of their Lord for every matter.
Peace it is until the emergence of dawn.

- al-Qur'an, Soorat-ul-Qadr (97)
